Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am sure this will disappear soon, but I have just gone to Area 51, Mathematics, and this is what I saw:

The user Akhil is listed twice, and he has different reputation/badges in each instance! Is this a bug that can be fixed, that is, is this something that might happen again with other proposals/users and should be checked out?

By the way, the link to the mathematics proposal is here, but as I said, the duplicate might disappear soon.

ADDED: When you click on the first profile, you get his math.stackexchange profile, but when you click on the second profile, you get a "page not found". mmmm...

I tagged it support, because I assume that he has two accounts, which should be merged. – Ladybug Killer Jul 31 '10 at 21:26
@Ladybug, and how would his two distinct accounts own the same questions? – badp Jul 31 '10 at 21:38
@badp, looks like they are already merged. But it's not handled correctly. So yes, it is a bug. – Ladybug Killer Jul 31 '10 at 21:51
@Ladybug: I can still see it there.... – Vivi Jul 31 '10 at 23:25

This is fixed now. User accounts no longer show up in "Top Users" once they have been removed.
